Bourbon Whiskey Closed Plates or Open?

Recommended Posts

I'm sure a dedicated whiskey distiller could give you better information, but for me I say it depends on how long you are planning on aging it. 

When I knew the spirit was only going to age for two years or less, I used two plates on a hybrid pot still. It separates it a bit more but the disadvantage is you have a product that will have less "character" in the end. In my experience, though, you can make up for that lack of character with interesting grains added to the mashbill. That being said, it does create a clean whiskey.
